An archive of the alleged Twitter account of the alleged Walmart Shooter (news article here, manifesto here), Patrick Crusius, has been located on The Wayback Machine. Twitter has suspended the account – a policy they have which I don’t really understand. Bizarrely, the account was just made on July 19th.
That is very strange, for sure. Maybe a previous account was banned (based on how he’s posting, that is certainly possible).
It is also very strange that his handle was his real name – @PatrickCrusius.
It appears that he was a big fan of David Duke, who he regularly retweeted. His display name was “Patrick Crusius -GUN- ANTI ABORTION- #MAGA #DUKE.”
This is definitely very ideal for the narrative being pushed by the media.
The individual does not seem to be very intelligent. The account looks a lot like the account of that MAGA Pinoy who allegedly sent those fake bombs, in fact. This is a stark contrast to his manifesto, which was totally coherent.
Interestingly, he was tweeting about the Gilroy Garlic Gunman.
I will just go ahead and screenshot and post all of the available tweets, because it is possible that archive.org will remove the page, and we should have these for posterity.
